Genes of the Damned - syllabus


    Zombie Science: Genes of the Damned
    "You won't survive a zombie outbreak if you don't know your science",
    explains Doctor Smith, "All the crossbows and machetes in the world
    won't help you when your brain's turning to goop because you
    underestimated the importance of washing your hands after having a wee."
    Genes of the Damned is the fourth show in the Zombie Science spoof
    lecture series, which has attracted audiences of over 36,000 at more
    than 400 lectures across the UK and Ireland - including sell-out
    performances at the Glasgow International Comedy Festival and Edinburgh
    Fringe Festival.
    Taking its cue from today's popular zombie "documentaries" and records
    of historical epidemics, this lecture considers who's most likely to
    become a zombie, contemplates the ethics of dealing with the infected
    and concludes with how stem cells might be used to treat the survivors.
    Presented by a Theoretical Zombiologist and featuring a multimedia
    presentation with audience participation and multiple choice quiz, the
    outcome of the show will be decided by the audience ... how will you
    deal with the Damned?
